Family of fallen Sikh Marine hurt by Trump?s treatment of Gold Star parents | The Sacramento Bee

From the article:


Singh and his family bleed patriotism. And they’ve spent much of the past week watching the immigrant parents of another fallen military service member spar with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“It hurts,” said Singh, 55. “I don’t know why. It’s like they’re playing political games with a Gold Star family.”
Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, a former Marine who usually supports the Republican Party, urged Trump to apologize.

“You are not just attacking us, you are cheapening the sacrifice made by those we lost,” wrote a group of 27 Gold Star parents in a letter published this week through the organization Vote Vets. It was organized by Karen Meredith of Mountain View, whose son Army Lt. Ken Ballard was killed in Iraq.
